Experienced Gardener required
Job Ref S233
Our client is an established company of landscape professionals who specialise in the field of garden design, landscape construction and garden care/maintenance for both residential and commercial clients. They are BALI registered and ISO 9001 certified. Due to continued expansion, the company are in search of knowledgeable gardeners at all levels; from assistant to skilled/senior, on a full-time permanent and fully employed basis. A generous salary will be offered in line with experience.
Applicants should have comprehensive hands-on experience in garden care and maintenance and an ability to carry out the finer aspects of horticulture, such as species-specific pruning, as well as the more physically demanding tasks. Applicants will be willing to work on their own initiative as well as under direction where necessary. Senior gardeners will be responsible for a team of three assistants, and assistant gardeners will work within a small team under the direction of a senior gardener. Successful applicants will be based primarily on a single large estate, with other sites include high-end new build properties throughout South East London.
Candidates for this position will ideally hold an academic horticultural qualification, with PA1/PA6 spray certificates being required of senior gardeners. Good plant knowledge is required, as is an ability to ensure safe and efficient use of a range of gardening machinery. Senior Gardeners are required to hold a full driving licence.
Benefits include training support, 28 days paid holiday and a company pension scheme. This is an excellent opportunity to join a well-established and growing company, and to develop your career with them.
